On the morning of Monday, May 7th, a semi struck and killed 59-year-old Juanita Mullin, of Las Vegas, on Interstate 15. While traveling northbound, the large truck rear-ended Mullin’s 2012 Chevy Impala near Baker. She was pronounced dead at the scene. The California Highway Patrol is investigating the crash.
“Due to their weight and size, collisions involving large trucks often cause serious harm to passenger vehicle occupants,” explained California truck accident lawyer James Ballidis.
Motor vehicle accidents claimed the lives of 192 drivers and passengers and injured another 10,983 throughout San Bernardino County in 2009, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System. That year, large trucks were involved in 29 of the fatal and 410 of the injury collisions that occurred in the county.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to offer our condolences to the family of Juanita Mullin, the driver who was struck and killed by the semi on Interstate 15 near Baker yesterday.
